The electric utility industry faces uncertainties ranging from technology impacts and capital investment strategies to volatile commodity prices and regulatory uncertainty. An integrated resource plan (IRP) is your road map to navigate those uncertainties and define a path that benefits your utility customers.

The IRP reflects the costs associated with serving customers over a longer time and requires input from a range of utility business functions. We turn those data points into sophisticated optimization models, including:

  • Long-range forecasting of energy requirements and commodity and wholesale energy markets
  • Ongoing costs associated with operation, maintenance and regulatory compliance for existing facilities
  • All-in costs associated with new generation, including conventional thermal, renewable, distributed and other customer-side options

Resource Planning to Adapt Investments to Changing Conditions

When considering the decades-long investments required for development of power infrastructure, utilities must remain nimble in the face of evolving market conditions. Our team provides and supports a range of risk analysis techniques that help you minimize your potential for future regrets.

We provide an integrated consulting, design and construction perspective based on experience successfully supporting and implementing plans approved by public utility commissions, federal agencies, utility boards of directors and city councils. We leverage our local knowledge gained from offices around the country in combination with our national perspective to offer sound decision guidance from every angle. We have specialists focused on how such advancing technologies as microgrids, rooftop solar, energy storage, electric vehicles may affect customer demand as you move forward with your plans.
